Seminars in Pediatrics, hosted annually by the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics and the American Family Children's Hospital, highlights the latest trends in pediatric research and clinical practice. Each year primary care providers, including physicians, nurses, and physician assistants come together to engage in lively lectures and networking with colleagues from across Wisconsin and the Midwest.
Marc S. Williams, MD
Marc S. Williams, MD, FAAP, FACMG is an alumnus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison having graduated with a BS in Chemistry in 1977, and an MD in 1981. He did a pediatric residency at the University of Utah from 1981-1984. After two years of solo practice in Hillsdale, Michigan, he joined the Riverside (California) Medical Clinic as a general pediatrician and practiced there until 1991. From 1991, Dr. Williams was at the Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center in La Crosse, WI. Hired as a general pediatrician, he eventually pursued fellowship training in Clinical Genetics, and was board certified in this specialty in 1996 and recertified in 2006. In 1999, he gave up general pediatric practice and became the associate medical director of the Gundersen Lutheran Health Plan while maintaining his genetic practice. It was by combining these two areas of expertise that Dr. Williams developed an interest in the role of genetics in health care delivery.
From January of 2005 to December 2011, Dr. Williams was the director of the Intermountain Healthcare Clinical Genetics Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah. Since January 2012, he has been the director of the Genomic Medicine Institute of the Geisinger Health System in Danville, Pennsylvania. Dr. Williams is the co-PI of the Geisinger Electronic Medical Records in Genomics (eMERGE) project, is PI on the PCORI-funded Patient Facing Genomic Test Report research project. Dr. Williams is the medical director of the whole genome sequencing clinical research project.
Among his many appointments and accomplishments, Dr. Williams is past chair of the Committee on the Economics of Genetic Services and the Ad Hoc Committee on the Value of a Genetic Diagnosis of the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG), as well as chair of the subcommittee on Health Care Systems of the Section on Genetics and Birth Defects of the American Academy of Pediatrics. He founded the ACMG Quality Improvement Special Interest Group.
Dr. Williams is the Editor-in-Chief of the Manual on Reimbursement for Medical Genetic Services. He is a member of the Clinical Pharmacogenetic Implementation Consortium and has participated in guideline creation and review for that group. He has authored nearly one hundred articles in the peer-review medical literature and is a frequent presenter at national and international meetings.

Elements of Competence
This CME activity has been designed to change learner knowledge and performance focusing on the American Board of Medical Specialties areas of medical knowledge and practice based learning and improvement.
This activity was designed to meet the needs of primary care providers including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and other health care providers who participate in the care of the pediatric and adolescent patients.
Statement of Need
The field of pediatric medicine is continually changing, resulting in knowledge and performance gaps between current practice and best practice recommendations. For the general pediatrician and the family practice physician access to updates in state-of-the-art pediatric medicine is critical to providing optimal patient care resulting in knowledge and performance gaps between current practice and best practice recommendations. In addition to feedback from past conferences and grand rounds programs, results of a survey of Wisconsin-based physicians indicated great interest in these topics. Furthermore, the members of the conference planning committee, considered experts in this field, identified issues that have seen significant advances in recent years and that will be most applicable to attendees’ clinical work.
